As I prepared to leave my room, I had to take a few moments to reflect on messages left on the art room board... I couldn't help but give a big sigh and a chuckle... It reminded me why I love teaching Middle School. It is because Middle School students inspire me with their knowledge and intuitiveness. They make me laugh whenever I am with them. Perhaps above I admire them for being risk takers who trust the creative process. I think about this more often than they would imagine when at work in my studio. This is a true gift... Thank you to my AWESOME Middle School Students!!!!!!
